"Hi John, A word of caution! DO Not bypass the offending fuse in any way. This could cause a fire and burn your rig to the ground. Cancel the trip until you find the problem.  I believe you have a short somewhere relative to your brake pedal…"

"Hi Jodi, I can't fix a thing unless I do a bit of reading to give me an idea of where to start, and that is usually the costly mistake we make by just replacing things that might be causing the problem. By not actually testing and finding the…"

"DO NOT, I REPEAT, DO NOT bypass the fuseable link with a direct wire. If the link is bad, find out why it went bad. It is a safety device to prevent a fire when a short in the ignition system occurs. If you replace it with a direct wire, without…"

Hey, welcome Gary to our little group!

See you live in paradise... it's 45 degrees here at the cabin and i have to winterize everything this week so it doesn't turn into an icecycle. Speakin of cycles... yours looks pretty cool. Always like the idea of a camper like yours and either an iron horse mounted on back or towed.

Give use a holler if there's anything we can give you are 2cents worth on your restoration. Some good tips alreayd in our Forums and folks individual blogs on restoring vintage and classic campers... which is THE way to go as far as we are concerned.

By the way, you might also like some of the DRY CAMPING links like Cowboys daily blog on his rvs and motorcycle and maybe also Jims Videos of runnin his sand rails and various other toys just south of you at Glamis.

keep on goin down the road.
